Germination and After Care Information for Blueberries
Place the seeds between some damp paper towels and put them in the fridge for 90 days. This cold stratification will break the seeds’ dormancy so they are ready for planting.
Once the 90 days have elapsed seed planting should commence in the spring. Plant the seeds in dampened acidic compost in seed trays and cover them with ¼ inch (6 mm.) of compost. Keep consistently moist and after six to eight weeks the seeds will begin to germinate. Keep the germinating seeds in a warm place (15-21 C.) with good light levels but preferably out of strong direct sunlight to begin with.
Seedlings will look like grass with a few tiny leaves on the top. Height growth during the first year will be around 5 or 6 inches (13-15 cm.) Once the plants are big enough to transplant, move them into pots in a sunny, warm area and keep moist.
The growing plants can be fertilized with a liquid fertilizer after two to three weeks in their pots. The resulting plants will bear fruit during the second year when the plant is 1 to 2 feet (31-61 cm.) tall. It may take several years when growing blueberries from seed before the plant will produce any significant amount of fruit.
